Substandard Care of Cauda Equina Syndrome

Substandard Care of Cauda Equina SyndromeCauda equina syndrome compensation claims most often arise from failings at the point of initial contact, where an appropriate reaction may save the patient from a lifetime of distress and disability.

Early symptoms of cauda equina syndrome

When a patient visits their GP with the possible early symptoms of cauda equina syndrome, it is vital that the medical practitioner recognises the potential for the condition to develop and takes all the necessary actions.

The patient may be exhibiting some of the following symptoms:

Failure to respond appropriately

Although the patient may not have and may not develop cauda equina syndrome, this condition needs to be considered when determining the next steps to take as a delay can be disastrous.

Prompt Action

It is widely recognised that cauda equina syndrome needs to be diagnosed at as early a stage as possible and often treated surgically as an emergency in order to increase the chances that the patient will recover some of their lost nerve function.

The devastating consequences for a patient who does develop cauda equina syndrome suggest that erring on the side of caution by referring for further investigation when a patient has the early possible symptoms is a better option than waiting to see how the symptoms develop.

Medical Negligence

Where a medical practitioner does not take heed of the possible warning signs and the patient is subsequently left with severe disability due to a late diagnosis and surgery, the GP may be considered to have provided a substandard level of medical care.
